Praise for Neil Salkind and Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics

“Salkind’s book is in a class by itself. It is easily the best book of its kind that I have come across. I enthusiastically recommend it for anyone interested in the subject, and even (and especially) for those who aren’t!” -Russ Shafer-Landau, Professor, University of Wisconsin

“Your book Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics has cleared up confusion and partial understandings that I have had for years. It is a must for anyone beginning or continuing their journey in this science. I love it, and will use it for all of the foreseeable future.” -Ronald A. Straube, Performance Improvement Coordinator, Mission Regional Medical Center

“Salkind’s examples assist with the application of key concepts and tests. The book is easy to read due to the way information is presented-such as the Tech Talk, Things to Remember, the Key to Difficulty Index, the various 10 lists, the icons, and the illustrations-including the cartoons. Even the title brings laughter to students-and humor can be a great antidote to stress!” -Mary Beth Zeni, Assistant Professor, Florida State School of Nursing

“I am a doctoral student and we simply love your book.” -Marisol Miller, PhD candidate, Arizona State University

“I just wanted to thank you for writing such a great book and for allowing people like me who are flung in at the deep end to stand a chance of understanding the basics and allowing us to get over the great fear of statistics! Thanks very much.” -Joanna Paolinelli, MS Student in Developmental Psychology
